Super Mario 3D World Will Hit Wii U This December! Now With 4 Player Co-Op & Nyan!

Super Mario 3d world 2

During their E3 Nintendo Direct this morning, Nintendo unveiled the next 3D Mario Platformer. Super Mario 3D World will release this December for the Wii U. One of the new additions is 4 player co-op and you can play as Mario, Luigi, Peach or Toad. Each character will have unique abilities such as Luigi jumping higher and Toad running faster than the other characters(think Mario Bros. 2). The trailer also featured a few other looks at the game play and a new power up which you can check out after the jump!

Yep, that was Mario in cat form. And here I was thinking they probably ran out of ideas for power ups. The new Cat Mario power up looks like it will allow you to perform an aerial pouncing attack as well as running up walls. I also like the fact that each character will have different abilities now instead of playing exactly the same just with a new skin.

Another safe title from Nintendo but ill admit that it looks like a whole lot of fun.
